Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band are on tour in Australia right now, and earlier this week, he brought out Eddie Vedder to cover “Highway To Hell,” paying tribute to the endlessly great and mostly Australian band AC/DC. But maybe Springsteen felt like that wasn’t enough, like he had to cover a band that was entirely Australian. So earlier today, he did exactly that onstage in Sydney, knocking out a triumphant version of INXS’s 1982 breakout hit “Don’t Change.” INXS have been going through something of a revival lately; the controversial Australian TV miniseries Never Tear Us Apart drew massive ratings in the band’s homeland. And if all this somehow leads to “Need You Tonight” landing in regular radio rotation, the world will be a better place. Watch a fan-made video of the Boss’s cover (which leads straight into the old reliable “Born To Run”) below.
Ooh! Do Silverchair next!
